Super Falcons and Barcelona Ladies striker, Asisat Oshoala, has disagreed with Manchester City legend Yaya Toure’s recent prediction regarding Nigeria’s Super Eagles in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.
Nigeria will compete in Group A at the 2023 AFCON in January alongside hosts nation Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea.
However, Toure had backed his country Ivory Coast and Guinea-Bissau to make it past the group stage and reach the knockout stage of the competition.
Speaking with Brila FM, Oshoala dismissed Toure’s prediction, insisting that Nigeria have players like Victor Osimhen and Victor Boniface who can lead the team to glory in the tournament.
“Talk is cheap. When we get to the tournament, we will separate the boys from the men,” Oshoala said.
“Why not? We have the almighty Osimhen, the best player in Africa; we have Boniface doing well at club level. I feel like we have a good team; it’s not about individual talent.”
